Title
Lecturer
Message
What is becoming evident these days is that neither the government nor the private sector alone can have all the resources needed to help people facing contingencies. It is therefore extremely important for any country to implement well-thought mechanisms of public-private social welfare mix in order to have a comprehensive system of social welfare that works properly. My main field of study is private and public social welfare, including theoretical analysis of civil society and the third sector, quantitative/qualitative research and analysis of social enterprises/voluntary organizations, and the co-production of public and social services between nonprofit and government sectors at local level. I am also researching and writing in the areas of citizens' participation in local government decision-making processes and asset-based community development approaches for more sustainable development.

Message
Japan’s society and economy are said to have reached maturity. As people’s attitudes diversify and institutions grow more complex, the social structure is also changing as the birthrate declines, the population ages, and the number of single-person households increases. Social changes are occurring more rapidly in Japan than elsewhere, and many countries are watching Japan’s response. What possibilities and challenges lie ahead for Japan? Together, we will examine the roles of the public and private sectors and civil society, the necessary policies and methods of implementation, and the ideal forms of central and local government, among other topics.
